Re: New Soldering Iron #building

Hello Sherley,

An RF-heated tip like a Metcal is even better because the heating of the tip is super-fast, but it's
expensive and it's overkill for most individual builders.

A lower cost version is the Xytronic LF-3000. I have been using one for over ten years now and tips,
replacement irons, etc are still available and not very expensive. Been using Weller irons before,
however rf-heating is a complete new soldering experience.
